It's raining superstores in Belgium. It started with in Antwerp with Hospital and RA. This Saturday Hunting & Collecting will open in Brussels and last weekend another gallery-store opened in Belgium's fashion capital Antwerp: Graanmarkt 13.
Graanmarkt 13 is a three floor gallery-store in a beautiful mansion behind the fashionable Leopoldstreet in Antwerp. The ground floor invites you to discover fashion with an extra – well-known labels but even new, upcoming designers. Women’s wear (Sandrina Fasoli, Alexander Wang, Thakoon, Indress,...) sits next to must-have accessories (Bibi van der Velden, Isaac Reina,...) exclusive perfumes (Parfum Francis,...) and handmade design objects (Vlaemsch, When Objects Work, Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum).
The open space on the first floor will host new fashion talent or an artist’s installation, but can be rented for private parties or a special board meeting. Currently there is a exhibition by Belgian photographer Ronald Stoops and his wife make-up artist Inge Grognard.
In the downstairs restaurant, you can have lunch or dinner but you’re even welcome in the afternoon for a drink or a piece of pie.
Owners Ilse Cornelissens and Tim Van Geloven surrounded them with some very talented artists for the art direction, kitchen, architecture and graphic design. To name them: Bob Verhelst, Seppe Nobels, Vincent Van Duysen and Base Design.
